Description [Suggest Change]

This would get 4 stars if it was 300 feet up but alas its a bit under exposed... The moves however are really cool and i recommend it to any strongish trad climbers looking for a new rumney adventure...

Climb up Left of Dog Biscuit in to the corner and get ready for the fun stuff... Stem up under the roof place some gear and get to it... There are a couple possible ways to do it, I jammed right out the Roof hand crack but you can also layback the corner of the roof heading left on smearing feet... Either way there are jugs all over the place toward the end... Exiting the route is pretty simple... You can anchor to a tree and belay from above and i think walking off is the easiest way down...

Location [Suggest Change]

To the Right look for the large Cracked Roof left of Dog Biscuit... not hard to locate...

Protection [Suggest Change]

Regular rack... the guide says bring lots of hand sizes, id say just use them wisely... Anchor to a tree at the top.... there is a funky fixed anchor but i wouldn't recommend using it...

This is a contender for the best non-adventurous trad route I've had the pleasure of climbing in Rumney. I'm not sure about using the holds in the seam, but the jams in the roof are incredible. Four stars, this route is badder than Michael Jackson in his prime.

Update: The questionable-at-best tat anchor has been replaced and is now some nice 1" nylon webbing with a waterknot and two biners. That will probably be good for a couple more seasons of abuse. Sep 28, 2015

Got on this last week and found myself totally inverted on perfect hand and foot jams, then stuffing a heel-toe cam by my head before shooting up to a jug. I'd consider this a Rumney classic due to its unique nature, g-rated protection and very fun movement. This route is just as good as it looks Apr 17, 2017
